Arrgh, I forgot about that.

An old version is in both repos, but the release string in RHEL Extras is
higher ( 0.10.0-18 vs 0.10.0-6).

And RHEL 7.7 beta does not contain a newer version of it.

I'm probably going to end up providing a newer version of it in an EPEL7
Copr repo for Pulp 3's needs, although not having it depend on the software
collection would make doing so easier.
